Well, I don't know about those two, but what I typically do is get a Sniper Rifle from a Gun Runner, and aim for their legs and cripple them. Then they can't run as fast and it's way easier to take them out, so just aim for the head until they are dead. It also helps if you have someone Accompanying you, while your fighting the death claws. Also, if you are under level 10 I wouldn't suggest trying to kill them because it's virtually impossible.

Easy you go to chet in goodsprings and ask him for supplies to deafeat joe cobbs gang if chet says no keep asking him for 3 days straight after exactly 3 days he gives you a rocket launcher and a scope after that go to Nellis Air Force Base go inside petes museum and talk to pete he will put the scope on the rocket launcher ad tell you to bring him a cattle prod when you bring it to him he will hook it up to the rocket launcher when he gives it back to you go to the deathclaw and shoot him with it it takes 3 shots to kill it.

There are a few weapons that can help you here:
The minigun, it can kill a deathclaw quite easily and very easily if you have armour piercing rounds.

The Anti-Material Rifle, It can kill a deathclaw in about 4-5 shots, and about 2-3 with armour piercing rounds.

And then the easiest way to kill deathclaws (and the most fun way) is the Fat Man, which will kill them in a nuke.

If you have the Lonesome Road DLC, there is a weapon you can obtain there called the Red Glare, which can take out anything quite easily

Also in Lonesome Road, a weapon that can help you kill a deathclaw is the Flare Gun and on it's own it won't do much good, but what makes it useful is that it frightens abominations (and deathclaws are abominations)

If you like to use Unarmed weapons there is one weapon that is good against deathclaws and it is the Fist of Rawr and it is a dearhclaw gauntlet (which you obtain from Lonesome Road)

Hope this helps, and have fun killing deathclaws

I always try to use Energy weapons to kill Deathclaws as I find it the most effective IMO. I have Cassidy following me everywhere with my usual alcohol as it helps and heals you as well. You can either get lucky with your critical one shot kill to the head, or cripple it's arms/legs, and just continue to fire at it until dead. You can also Snipe the crap out of it, or Missle launch it to death.
